    Do you do the PCR test at the airport and then go to your ASQ hotel? Or do you do the test at the hotel?

      Dear Barry,

      Good day.
      If your flight lands in Phuket Airport, the COVID test will be done at the airport. If you land in Bangkok, the test will be done at your test and Go hotel or SHA+ Hotel.
      Thank you.

      Dear Steve,

      Good day.
      Yes, you have to book for 2 nights since your COVID test will be taken the following morning after arrival and then you will be released 24 hours after the test.
      Thank you.

    HI!
    We have been trying to book our test&go hotels for a while now, but until now agoda has cancelled our hotels bookings and we have been trying for 3rd time this week, but it doesn’t work. Is there any other places we can book an test&go hotel?

      Hi Christina,

      For all quarantine programs we recommend booking directly with the hotel.

      Thank you.
